One of the previously mentioned postcards was of Kinkakuji. It didn’t take me until 2013 to finally see this magnificent place, although that is when I took today’s photo. I saw this place in person for the first time in 2007.
The sky wasn’t so great for a panorama like this, as rain had been coming down in buckets and was about to begin again. I took this photo on one of the hottest and most humid days of 2013 in Kyoto. Not pleasant weather for such a pleasant place like the Shugakuin Imperial Villa.
The scene on the day I left Japan for Korea last summer as I stood on the platform in the Tennoji Station in Osaka…
It doesn’t look like I will be going to Asia this year, but I will likely be spending a couple weeks in Mexico in August, my first return to Mexico in about eight years.
